A family in Tennessee is waiting to hear if a box of ashes found in Alabama could be their father's remains.

Four weeks ago, Florala Police officials said a power line crew found a small pine box beside a highway near the Alabama-Florida line. 

A framed American flag was found with the box.

Investigators said they have been contacted by at least four people, including a Tennessee man, who said his dad's remains and a flag were stolen from his truck a few months ago.

Police are still waiting for a final identification.
